Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that the successful conclusion of the third tourism working group meeting of the G20 countries in Jammu and Kashmir served as a lesson for those who have consistently attempted to create unrest in the region.
“The tourism meeting of the G20 countries concluded on May 25. The successful G20 meeting in J-K is not only a matter of happiness for the country, but a huge lesson for those who have frequently tried to create trouble in J-K,” Sinha said, addressing a function at the Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre in Srinagar.
Speaking about the participation of a large number of individuals in the meeting, Sinha attributed it to the positive changes that have taken place in the union territory since Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed leadership in 2019, particularly with the abrogation of Article 370.
“Jammu and Kashmir has come a long way, and places like Shopian or Pulwama districts in south Kashmir, which the country knew for other reasons, saw the participation of more than 10,000 youths in the Tiranga yatra,” the LG said while highlighting the progress Jammu and Kashmir has made, citing the example of Shopian and Pulwama districts in south Kashmir. “These youths chanted ‘Bharat mata ki ai’ carrying Tiranga in their hands. This is the change Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed in the last three years,” he added while emphasizing that Jammu and Kashmir will not only integrate further with India but also make significant contributions to India’s development
